Abu Dhabi, January 9, 2014
Leading physicians from Sheikh Khalifa Medical City (SKMC) will focus on gastrointestinal tract emergencies at a session next week in Abu Dhabi.
The third session of the Critical Care Refresher Series (CRS) will be held on January 11 at the Sheraton Al Khalidya hotel.
The session will be led by SKMC in collaboration with physicians from Mafraq Hospital, Dubai Hospital and the newly constructed Sheikh Khalifa General Hospital (SKGH).
The attendees will be informed about the latest updates in bariatric surgery, liver transplantation, bleeding emergencies, feeding in sick patients, besides a step-by-step demonstration of liver dialysis.
Dr Tarek Wahba, specialist physician in the Intensive Care Department and CRS Coordinator, said: “All physicians involved are devoting part of their free time for the sake of delivering their knowledge to the UAE community; it is a sacred mission for a sacred profession and we’re excited to continue the mission with the third session.”
Critical care medicine is a branch of medicine concerned with the diagnosis and management of life threatening conditions requiring continues organ support and invasive monitoring.
